    I have nightmares about burning to death in a nuclear explosion every now and then. It would be scary as hell to see a mushroom cloud on the horizon.

    Man, you can`t help but appreciate the power these things have.

    But the thought of dropping this on something/someone(s) is so horrific that it pretty much negates any appreciation...

    I`m sorry to hear that; I have dreams of whitnessing an explosion every so now and then. Just far enough away to be out of reach safely and yet close to watch.

    It`s kind of funny in those dreams because a raid siren will always go off before the bomb gets dropped.

    So if I`m with someone in the dream and the siren goes off I`ll say something along the lines of `I`ll bet a bomb gets dropped now because I dream about this sometimes`, then sure enough it does.

    One day I`m going to hear that siren in real life and freak out.

    Isn`t that the song from the matrix?

    Oh yeah me too Bulldozer. I get nervous when I think about nukes cause most likely NYC would be bombed and live on Long Island. I`m in that area where you die slowly and painfully with your skin melting off. There would also be no escape since I don`t have boat or anything to get out of here.

    I used to live in the city where you would just die immediately with no pain if there was a nuke but my parents decided to move out here after 9/11. I told them, great, so we`re living on a death trap island where we would die in excruciating pain, thanks.

    I think about this too much.

    I know, I know, but after 9/11 I`ve thought about it more since it was real and physically in front of my face.

    I didn`t mean countries that could bomb us, I know a lot COULD, but I meant would. All that could right now know we`d just do it right back and there goes the world, so they won`t.

    That`s why its so dangerous for Iran to go nuclear because there are people in that region of the world if they could somehow get a hand on one or were able to buy one, they would use it.

    That is horrific. At any moment someone could just press a button and boom hundreds of thousands of people dead. And what if there was a computer glitch on the radars and it showed that there was a nuclear bomb heading our way. We counter strike, they counter strike, another country strikes… so-on- and so-on and so-on.. Millions upon millions upon millions of people dead.

    "That`s why its so dangerous for Iran to go nuclear because there are people in that region of the world if they could somehow get a hand on one or were able to buy one, they would use it."

    I`m no expert on the matter, but I seriously doubt that any nuclear device built by Iran could pose a threat to the United States, I`m sure that any attack from that far away (it needn`t be that country) would be detected and neutralized.
    And as far as I see it, any country that has nuclear weapons (United States, England, France, Israel, India, Russia, Pakistan) and condem any other country that attempt to build one of their own is a perfect definition of hypocrisy.
    Obviously, I don`t want Iran to get their hands on nuclear weapons, but no more or less than any other country.

    maggierose: What you describe is exactly how it`s outlined in the MAD scenario first populated in the 50`s IIRC. MAD stands for Mutually Assured Destruction and boils down to "If you want to destroy us, we`ll make sure you`re destroyed too". As horrible as it sounds and as horrible as that may be it is an effective form of deterrent and was a major sticking point during the time of the Cold War where tensions were at their highest. It also adds in an extra level of certainty and protocol that something like this won`t just happen on "accident"

    Its been a real threat waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before 9/11. And the fact you live in one of the biggest cities in the world isn`t helping much either.

    I`m sorry, but Iran WENT nuclear. I am positive (but have been wrong in the past) that they do currently have nuclear weapons.

    If I had to go a step further and guess why they aren`t using them on, say, Israel yet, I would say it`s because they know that our nukes can reach them, and that we would defend Israel, potentially, with returned nuclear force. Just a guess.

    Unfortunately, they were to close. And they weren`t informed of radiation. Remember back then not many people knew about the effects of nuclear bombs other then they were big booms. Debris fell on the ship, and people picked up for souvenirs.. lets just say deformities and deaths years later occured of this. One guy`s hand got as big as a baseball glove or more cause of it.

    Its proably in a heavly fortifed metal bunker or soemthing of that sort. The objects you see are mostly made of wood and or are not sunk into the ground.
    I am pretty sure of stories and photos of nagasaki and heroshimi were bank vaults and items like that were still standing even after the bombs dropped.

    Opie, it`s a good point you raise, and a standard tenet of the way the world works, and is rooted in science. To quote a better man than me:

    "Big dogs have little fleas,
    And smaller fleas that bite `em.
    And those fleas have smaller fleas,
    And so on, ad infinitum."

    Actually the theme this song is based on is from the Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar, so in a way Clubbed to Death is just another variation on this theme. Take that pop music!
